      Here's what the last firmware change addresses. Read the last line...

      What is Changed by This Update?
      This update makes the following changes to your BCD396XT scanner:
      Add support for storing Unit IDs in channels with alpha tags.
      Fixed a problem where corrupted memory caused by a bad PC programming upload would make the scanner lock up on the copyright screen.
      Fixed a bug that caused a bad hit count with some PC software.
      Save Hold status immediately instead of at power-down.
      Add ATT indication in Close Call Only mode
      Fixed a bug that could cause APCO P25 decoding to stop in some conditions.
